Award Winner | Photo of the Day | April 18, 2012
This photo was made in Kenya, in the Masai Mara National Park. The expedition was stopped in Nairobi for a week and I rented a 4×4 with a couple of friends and we drove to an amazing experience in the Masai Mara. Millions of wildebeest everywhere, lions, African colors and these amazing elephants. It is one of the many photographs that I took in my long trip through Africa in 2010. I left Rome in August and come back 6 months later, after visited 13 countries.

Photographer:Gabriele Ferrazzi (Rome, Italy)
Gabriele Ferrazzi was born in Rome in 1982, and lives there, but the majority of his shots are from all around the world. He has done a long walk from Cape Town to Istanbul with an overland truck, and his next mission (dream) will be to drive from Rome to Sydney with a car… He likes to define himself as a travel photographer, but in general all his shots are expressions of his vision and his passions. Usually he uses Canon cameras and professional lenses to have the maximum quality. He is 29 years old, and just wants to travel and do photography for the rest of his life. He wants to meet different people, different cultures from every corner of this planet and really start to understand this world.
